Could anyone recommend an anime I might like? I adored death note, liked dbz as a kid (I’m finding dbz Kai is a good work out show) and otherwise some non anime favorite shows are: Rick and Morty, always sunny in philadelphia, American dad, Bob’s burgers, and I’ve enjoyed literally every MCU show. Oh, and Rick and Morty 1000 times Rick and Morty.
